The Scion brand belongs to the Japanese corporation Toyota. Since 2003, this brand has been producing passenger cars for young people. They have a simple, but at the same time very attractive design, and a low price.
The first cars were presented at the Chicago Auto Show, after which sales started very, very successfully. These hatchbacks, xA and xB, were based on the Toyota Yaris, and were previously sold under the parent brand in Japan, so the manufacturer has already managed to test all the technologies and provide a very high quality product to American consumers. In 2005, the Scion model range was expanded, with a tC coupe with a rather powerful 2.4-liter engine. After another 2 years, new models were presented in the range of the brand - the 2nd generation xB and the hatchback subcompact xD. The latter was powered by a 128-horsepower 4-cylinder engine and had a significantly more spacious cabin than its predecessor xA, which turned out to be a bit tight for American consumers. The complete set of the model was also quite wide, despite the fact that the whole brand as a whole was positioned as budget cars for novice drivers. The car had air conditioning, anti-lock braking system, power steering, airbags and much more. Thanks to this, xD was in great demand among young people, although against the background of the models of the parent brand Toyota, its sales looked modest, but for the young brand it was a significant success.
In 2008, the Scion Hako concept car was released, which received high marks at the New York Auto Show. The car had a retro design and a vertical windshield and attracted a lot of attention.
In 2012, Scion launched the original FR-S coupe.
